Tweede Jan Steenstraat 100 – Elegant home in bustling De Pijp
Situated on an elegant street in De Pijp, perpendicular to Amstel River, is Tweede Jan Steenstraat. At number 100 is this stunning, well-maintained building that dates back to 1884. An amazing place to live quietly amidst the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. Behind the charming facade are a garden (with shed) and a south-facing terrace. A lush oasis that is accessed via 3 sets of French doors from the family kitchen.
An enticing home
Without doubt, the building’s extraordinary original architectural features are its crown jewels: a marble fireplace mantel, wooden herringbone flooring, fitted cabinets and pocket doors with stained glass. The slightly raised portico entrance opens to the home. The nook showcases the property’s first original ornaments, with many more to marvel at on the 3-meter tall ceilings. Stunning details that lend the home extraordinary appeal.
Stay dry under the portico as you slide your keys into the front door lock and walk into a house that instantly feels like home. Its countless original period features and beautiful flooring lend the home a welcoming feel. The hall leads to the street-facing living room or to the garden-facing family kitchen. Because the home is slightly raised above street level, passersby can’t look in, but your view outside is unobstructed. It also makes the incidence of light just that much more beautiful, especially due to the ceilings that reach over 3.10m tall. The front bay windows still have the original shutters, this is the perfect spot for a window seat.
The original pocket doors, with side cabinets, lead to the amazing family kitchen with three sets of French doors to the terrace. Steps from the terrace lead straight down into the garden designed by architect Cilia Prenen. The garden includes a shed, and faces south. Tall trees ensure optimum privacy. The kitchen has an island with a sink and is fitted with a full range of appliances .
Impressive! That best describes the bedrooms on the 1st floor. Especially the primary bedroom is simply seeping in potential. The French doors to the property-wide balcony and the side room are begging to be transformed into a hotel-suite caliber room. The other large bedroom faces the street. This room also has French doors to a smaller balcony, and has a walk-in closet. The 3rd bedroom is slightly more modest, but is still large enough to turn into a fabulous study. When this floor was remodeled in 2016, both a floating floor and a floating ceiling were installed.
The basement level accommodates 3 more bedrooms and a bathroom. This truly makes the home ideal for a family with children that may already be at university or college but are still living at home. A private bedroom wing for each generation, but still under a single roof.
Tweede Jan Steenstraat is in a prime location in Amsterdam Zuid. At the heart of De Pijp, which means you have an unbridled choice of restaurants, cafes and shops as well as the market in the immediate area to choose from. Cross the bridge over Amstel River and find yourself on Wibautstraat in Oost with a host of hotspots and Amsterdam’s best bakery. Charming IJsselbuurt is also a mere stone’s throw away. Feel like unwinding or exercising in the park? Sarphatipark is around the corner, and Oosterpark is just a bit further along. By car, the A10 beltway is an 8-minute drive away and if you’re commuting by public transportation, the location couldn’t be any better. Catch the metro on Wibautstraat or the tram that stops around the corner. Amstelstation is just 8 minutes’ cycling distance from the house.
